Hello to my modern style people out there! This style is very popular for some people, while others see it as cold and minimalist (only having what is necessary). It is often described as clean, with streamlined furniture. Characterized by smooth polished surfaces, strong geometric shapes and asymmetry - an unbalanced space.

If you like the Modern style the you tend towards neutrals, often white walls and tone on tone color schemes. You would pick materials and finishes that are sleek, smooth and polished such as finished concrete, granite, chrome and stainless steel.

The architectural details of the space are very geometric and angular. To accent the space, artwork is crucial, but instead of florals and still lifes, they are typically striking shapes and forms which are often called out with a spot light, to give more emphasis to the piece.
